Spotlight on Yellow Mini, a novel in verse

yellow miniMark, Mr. Popularity, tools around town in the yellow mini left to him by his recently deceased father; his new girlfriend Stacey can’t believe her luck, but doesn’t understand Mark’s odd need to disappear into the woods from time to time; her former friends Mary and Annabelle try to find their place in the world – shy Mary transforms into a concert pianist and Annabelle into an world-changing activist with the idealistic and adoring Christopher by her side. In the background, the teens’ parents struggle with their desire to protect their children, yet give them room to grow into the adults they must become. Each voice tells his or her story in powerful free verse.

I read this book in a single day, very unusual for me. With few words, Lori Weber paints a picture of changing friendships, and how reality can be ever so different than the fantasy. I particularly enjoyed the plot twists.  The characters are beautifully drawn, each one lovable despite his or her flaws. This is a powerful and uplifting story.
